I always wished the Dead would hae gone back and revisit some of the 66 covers . This, and "In the Pines" would have been great . Dylan's version on his first album has , over the years, turned many on to Blind Lemon Jefferson .

The boys certainly did evolve quite a bit...that 65 fall set of recordings (and early 66) on "birth of the DEAD" is just full of some amazingly divergent songs as they seemingly tried to record a series of "pop three min singles" sorts, while also experimenting with snipets of Pig-esque jam numbers...love hearing Phil on lead vocals.

Live, they were the "dance/jam PP" band in 66, and part of 67, but in the studio, fall 65, 66 and then with the 67 first album, they coupled that with an amazing mix of three min covers/originals (of course, Golden Road is my all time fav of this "mini-early era era", but CPW stands out too), that really reveals their breadth...even moreso than in 70 when they couple the "suites" of 68/69 with the acoustic "Americana" tunes of Work/Beauty.

That certainly would have been something. I do not listen the early stuff too often but when I do I love it and am always amazed by Jerry's lightning leads and the band's take on the old blues and traditional numbers.
